Weekly Update – 11/25/2007

November 25, 2007 · 3 comments

  • Diet starting weight: 295
  • Week starting weight: 269
  • Today’s weight:?
  • Week weight loss: ? lbs
  • Total weight lost: 26 lbs

Can’t do a traditional update because I don’t have my trusted scale with me in Paris (or any scale, for that matter). But I must say I do feel thinner. My goal is to come back next week 2 pounds lighter and while at first I was hesitant about being able to do so I do feel like it is at least a possibility now.

Things I did well this week:

  • I’ve done a couple of 3 mile runs outside while in Paris. This is such a sign that I am making the lifestyle changes I need to make to be successful – last year I never would have done something like this.
  • Have not had any food binges and in general have been eating well.
  • Have been enjoying my time in Paris without overly worrying about my diet.

Things I did not so well this week:

  • I haven’t been drinking enough water. It’s really hard drinking water when you are always walking around sightseeing I think. I have been ordering water when we eat, but really not drinking in between meals. I need to make this a priority (although water is expensive if I don’t drink it at the hotel).
  • Nutella Crepe. Oh boy was it good though!
  • Not eating very balanced meals and not eating enough, I don’t think. Lucky to get 3 meals in when I should be eating more small ones.

Of the two weeks I was worried about, this is the one I was less worried about. I’m with my wife and I knew we would be doing a lot of walking around. Starting tomorrow I’ll be doing less walking since I’ll be working. That should mean I can drink more water, but I’ll have to be more careful about the food intake. As well I know I’ll be more tempted to overeat and other bad things once I am by myself here.

So far I feel good about reaching my goal for this month despite a difficult travel schedule. This is the week that will make or break me – I’ve got group dinners I’ll be hosting, which are always tough for me. I’ll be by myself in hotel rooms. I won’t be walking around much.

Time to focus on a good week.

I bet you’re having a great time in Paris. And congratulations on all the weight loss!

I dropped out of the game for a while there but I am back and blogging again.

Being surrounded by French food must be quite a temptation but I know you will return from the battlefield unscathed!

Enjoy the food and take a walk to enjoy the sights and burn off the wonderful food. Yes its very expensive there and in London but you only live once so enjoy it while you can! Give my regards to London, its been too many years since we’ve been home.

I hate drinking too much water if I’m not close to a restroom. I’d be passing on it with the site-seeing as well.

Sounds like you’re doing fine.
